A time is coming soon when we will have to ask, “What is good not for the individual or the party but for the country?”, just as we did at the advent of World War II or on 9-11. It’s a shame that such times are so rare and often only brought on by a crisis. It seems that mistrust governs us most of the time. And so, the approval rate, in a recent poll, of people in this place is around 10 percent.
Nobody wins in a situation like this. I’ve heard all the left/right arguments for so long I’m just numb. And I’m depressed because the country is going down the tubes. There doesn’t seem to be anyone who has the ability to bring it together and so there’s not much hope either.
All I feel like I can do is take photos of a beautiful city in the failing light. Try to be an artist. Avoid futile arguments. Love my wife and kids.
And munch on these.
